Chapters are devoted to an explanation of the tax laws that determine public charity versus private foundation status for charitable organizations and the laws applicable to charitable giving, including the regulation of charitable solicitations and application of the cy pres doctrine. The casebook includes chapters on the general and specialized laws applicable to several diverse types of nonprofits, such as charitable organizations generally, but also churches and other religious organizations, schools, hospitals, social clubs, trade and professional organizations, political organizations, and homeowners’ associations. These chapters address First Amendment constraints applicable to religious organizations, freedom of association, antitrust laws applicable to nonprofit organizations, and problems relating to dissolving nonprofit organizations, including a discussion of legal issues relating to the conversion of nonprofit hospitals to for-profit entities. The casebook will provide law students the expertise needed to represent the growing number of nonprofit organizations.
